The Walking Dead season 10 will be returning to AMC for the finale episode in October 2020. Meanwhile actress Register, who plays Laura in the post-apocalyptic series, has opened up about an unaired sex scene. Express.co.uk has everything you need to know about why the scene between Laura and Eugene (played by Josh McDermitt) was cut.
Why was the sex scene cut in Walking Dead?
Laura is one of the former antagonists in the series and she was a member of the Saviours.
She followed Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) but after Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln) left Alexandria, she became a member of the leadership council.
There has been some tension between Eugene and Laura, and at first she saw him as insignificant.
However she ends up trusting Eugene as a member of the Saviours, until he causes them to lose the war.
Due to the time jump in the series the extent of their relationship is unclear.
Register spoke on the Talk Dead To Me podcast about one scene which was considered “too distracting”.
She revealed she had been asked about her limits when it comes to filming sex scenes.
Register said: “So we go and we film it, it was really funny. If I remember right, I kiss him and he’s like, ‘You taste like stone fruit and applesauce.’
“I’m getting dressed and he’s got the sheet pulled up around him, it’s so cute.”
But the actress said the scene was cut as it would have been too much of a plot change.
She said: “It would have been too much of a subplot distraction from what was going on. So maybe from a story perspective, it just didn’t work.”
Her character Laura was killed off in season 10 episode 10 after she was slammed against a prison cell by Beta (Ryan Hurst).
Fans are now expecting Eugene to pursue a relationship with the mysterious Stephanie, whom he has been speaking with via the radio.
Some viewers were convinced Laura is still alive, with some saying she deserved a better death scene if she really had left the series.
Her character was introduced in the seventh season, and they thought she would spend more time on the show.

Some fans believe slamming her body against the prison cell would not have been enough to kill her.
Register explained her death scene was not actually a part of the script and she did not realise she would get so much screen time.
Fans took to Reddit to discuss Laura’s character, with some saying they loved her interactions with Eugene.
Tractorock8 said: “I love her! Wish we could see more of her. I think she will have more of a part to play coming up.”
Another fan said one of the highlights of the series was Laura telling Eugene he “can’t have lobster”.
Earlier this year Register also revealed how some of the scenes with herself and Rosita (Christian Serratos) were cut.
They were actually becoming good friends and they ended up killing zombies together.
The actress is on Instagram and in October 2019 she shared a photo of herself dressed as her character Laura.
She said: “Tonight’s episode was so much fun. Any moment you get to crack a smile on this show and smash some zombies is a good day.”
One fan commented: “I did not want to watch your last episode, but I did. I am very p* at TWD/AMC on how they did it and just doing it period.
“Your character had a lot more to give to the show in so many ways. I guess they did not see that.”
